There are others on the board who know this detail better than I, but from the way I've read it, both the retcon AND the traditional are canon for this volume. Hudlin is doing what he wants to do. So he is using what he wants from T'Challa's past portrayals.

This is pretty much how it's being used, though it's not rationally possible.

Outside of the Black Panther title itself, Panther is generally treated as if his original history is still intact, but his marriage to Ororo and the new look of the Dora Milaje have been added on.

Within the Black Panther book we've seen a very inconsistent portrayal of T'Challa's history, starting with a complete retcon, then a slow assimilation of parts of T'Challa's original history, despite the fact that most of the two histories couldn't coexist.
